    People keeping saying they reckon it is Balotelli. I'm looking forward to the 1st of July.
    I hope it's more than one signing though

    I've said this before, but I don't rate costa as high as most people + the media do. Every time I've seen him play, he hasn't been anything special :/

    Yeah yeah he's been injured and that's why he's playing **** at this tounrament but even in the la liga, I've never seen anything from him that's wow'd me- not like Falcao or Cavani did in the season before last

    Also, Gazidis said that were in talks with our targets. He pluralised it so I'm hoping we won't stick to the single signing

    That's the thing he isn't that type of striker who is technically magnificent but he does the job and gets down n dirty when he needs to and has given Atletico a great return

    He's a dangerous player. Just only had one good season and is quite different to your traditional world class striker

    Yeah, he gets the job done and is a good player there's no doubt about that.

    But I do think he's overrated, by both the media and a lot of fans

    Nah I agree. He's had one quite good season and one great season but I don't see him as naturally talented.

    only reason puma would help us do a deal would be if it was an absolutely WC signing, they aint helping us do no balotelli level or less deal.

    It's not a question of if they are helping us it's more of who they are helping us with

    And I'm dying to find out because Ballotelli was one if Arsenes targets for a while

    i dont think they are helping us, unless you mean the kit deal. i dont think they would give us extra finance to help buy someone of balos level.

    That's what I mean - helping with the finance part obviously I don't see them sending agents or scouts to players etc lol

    Ballotelli isn't exactly that expensive. Think he's priced around 20m so we wouldn't even need Puma for that

    Whenever in this History of Football has a sponsor influenced a transfer in anyway. "PUMA are helping Arsenal sign PUMA players" What does that even mean. How would this process even work, Unless a clause like that is stipulated in the deal that Arsenal have to sign PUMA players I don't see PUMA having any involvement whatsoever.

    i can understand if Arsenal were to buy Ronaldo or Messi, then PUMA would subsidies the transfer a bit because of the potential return in shirt sales over a longer period. Not for the likes of our targets though. I think he means the kit deal though which is coming in during July some time, so not exactly Puma helping us, just paying us what were owed.

    Probably does seem quite absurd if you put it that way but I was thinking more along the lines of extra finances to buy those players

    It can still be seen as an investment deal because if the club is more successful more people will buy shirts as said. Don't know how likely it is, just said that I've seen a few articles on it this year
